A relatively slow first half for the Patriots ended on a high note Sunday at Gillette Stadium.
Rex Burkhead’s first touchdown of the 2020 season extended New England’s lead over the Las Vegas Raiders to 13-3 with less than a minute to go in the second quarter. Burkhead hauled in a screen pass from Cam Newton before getting by Raiders safety Jonathan Abrams with a sharp cut and leap over the goal line.

New England’s 10-point lead didn’t last very long, however. Derek Carr connected with tight end Foster Moreau for a 1-yard touchdown seconds before the break to trim the home team’s advantage to 13-10.
